Harvard scientists 3D bioprint layered tissue with blood vessels

3D bioprinting, the process of creating human tissues through 3D printing, is in the early stages of development. But bioprinting will advance far faster than general understanding and acceptance of the ramifications of this technology, according to analyst firm Gartner.

Scientists at the Harvard Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering announced Wednesday that they have used multiple print heads and customized "inks" to create complex living tissue constructs, complete with tiny blood vessels.
